Realms Beyond 61
Pitboss game for new players === Connection details === Server url: pb.zulan.net:3061, No password Join over the 'Multiplayer > Direct IP' panel in the game. === Mod folder === Extract the zip archives of mods always into following folder
[…]\Beyond the Sword\Mods\ (Steam-free version) or
[…]\Steam\SteamApps\common\Sid Meier's Civilization IV Beyond the Sword\Beyond the Sword\Mods (Steam version)
=== Mod links === This game runs with a mod named RB61. The name is selected to avoid confusions about mod version numbers. Currently it is identical to CloseToHome_2.0.5. Download: RB61
Note about updates: If we needs to update the mod later, you can download the new version here.
=== Game start with mod === Do not select the mod after the startup in the ingame menu, but directly start the game with the desired modification. (Otherwise the wrapper, see below, will not work as expected. For this you need to create a shortcut (right mouse click on the binary) and then changing the target field of this shortcut to
"[…]\Beyond the Sword\BTS_Wrapper.exe" mod= "RB61" or "[…]\Beyond the Sword\Civ4BeyondSword2015.exe" mod="RB61"========= Tools =========
Technically, the game works without these tools but all players of the game will profit if you use them! They remove the two most annoying problems.
Copy these files into the installation directory of Civ4:BTS. If you're using the Steam version, and the multiplayer sections does not show the 'Direct IP' bullet point, start the game with the binary below. It is (almost) the old binary without Steam dependencies.
If this does not work, switch the game version in the Steam library settings of the game.
1. The new binary.
Only with this binary can more than one player join a PB server. Otherwise, other players will be blocked.
2. The 'wrapper' binary
This tool is needed to speed up the login. It can reduce the time needed for joining from several minutes to seconds. At the beginning of a PB you will think it is not required, but the save file size is growing with each turn.
Internally it will load Civ4BeyondSword2015.exe (or Civ4BeyondSword.exe) Because of this we included above exe to be sure that both is installed.
